I am wondering where the Spitfire Axles are prone to failure.  I recently 
pulled the axles out of my Chevy pickup and discovered that they are not all
that much larger than the ones on my Mk1 Spit.  I would thing that if there is 
not that much difference in the size, the difference must be in the
quality of the metal if people are having their axles break.  

I would love to hear opinions (especially those backed by personal experience) 
on the subject!
